An Illinois Wesleyan education is one that "deepens the specialized knowledge of a discipline with a comprehensive world view [and] affords the greatest possibilities for realizing individual potential while preparing students for democratic citizenship and life in a global society" (Mission Statement).
The International Office supports this commitment by helping students to study abroad, whether it is for a single semester or full year. Through this office, IWU students have the opportunity to study in hundreds of locations in over 70 different countries in almost every region of the world. We also have programs suited to just about every discipline offered on campus and for students at various points in their academic career.
As you consider your study abroad options, explore this site and make an appointment to talk with someone in the International Office.

Get those cameras ready! Last fall, we launched a new photo contest for students currently abroad focused on graffiti. And the winner is... "Graffiti (Paris)" by Karen Thul. Congratulations Karen. It was a tough choice--just check out the entries.
For students going abroad this spring's contest, we're looking for Street Fashion--so send in your best shots of local fashionistas or post them to our Facebook page.
The spring IWU Study Abroad Fair will be held Thursday, January 17, 4:00-6:00 in the Dug Out. Stop by, talk to our program representatives and returned students, and prepare for your own study abroad adventure.
